In this session we explore Unconscious biases as our unintentional people preferences, formed by our social experiences. We can subconsciously categorise people when we meet them to avoid having to conduct completely new sets of parameters and decision making for every new person we meet. We assign a ‘value’ to the categories, we take mental shortcuts, and we use them without even realising it. We will look at the way in which stereotypes are developed, often based on images in digital media, or assumptions passed on by parents, peers, and others. We will learn how to put checks and balances in place to recognise and remodel our own behaviours.
